Badger Basement Systems Employee Shares Love of Art with Disabled Students

At 10 a.m. last Friday June 25, a classroom filled with wide-eyed elementary students anticipated the adventure that Chrissy Allard would have planned for them in their art class!

Allard works as Badger Basement System's marketing coordinator, but leapt at the chance to interact with children. So, she spent the morning with cognitively disabled students at Luther Elementary. She has always loved helping students connect with art and to develop their art skills, and here was her chance!

Badger Basement SystemsAllard read aloud to the students and even created a mural to help them see how they can use art to bring a story to life! She read a "Magic School Bus" book that took the 11 students on a tour through outer space. Through only using chalk and black paper, Allard helped the students to use their imaginations and create outer space in their very own classroom!

Allard loves to work with children, and is no stranger to Luther Elementary. She had spent some time as a student teacher there and at Purdy Elementary before she graduated from the University of Wisconsin- Whitewater. She received her degree in Art Education and Advertising; a perfect precursor for what she does today!

"I feel it's important for all children to be able to express themselves through art. It's also another way to integrate other subjects and avenues for learning," said Allard.

This is just another example of how Badger Basement System's employees love to interact with the community in any way they can. 

They use the skills they've developed to not only make Badger more effective in a business sense, but extends their efforts into helping and getting involved in the community.

In the past, Badger Basement Systems has helped Habitat for Humanity, the American Lung Association, local fire departments, and even awarded free basement repair to a Fort Atkinson couple with flood damage. Badger offers free estimates for basement waterproofing, crawl space waterproofing and repair, foundation repair and basement finishing within their Wisconsin service area.
